A llama cannot stick its tongue out past its lips. But a cow can stick its tongue in its nose.

Butterflies taste with their hind feet.

Only female mosquitoes bite

Ants stretch when they wake up. They also appear to yawn in a very human manner before taking up the tasks of the day.

Bees have 5 eyes. There are 3 small eyes on the top of a bee's head and 2 larger ones in front.

Birds have the right of way on all Utah highways

Astronauts are not allowed to eat beans before they go into space because passing wind in a spacesuit will damage it.

The liquid inside young coconuts can be used as substitute for blood plasma.

No piece of paper can be folded in half consecutively more than 7 times (doubling factor... you end up folding 27 == 128 sheets of paper).

1 in every 4 Americans has appeared on television.

The banana cannot reproduce itself. It can be propagated only by the hand of man. Further, the banana is not a tree, it is a herb, the largest known of all plants without a woody stem or solid trunk.
